While the research being done in endocrinology using genetics is only done in a few select locations, that work can make a big difference in helping a patient answer some of their most pressing questions.

Joel Hirschhorn, MD, PhD, from Harvard Medical School discussed how the technology can help not only with the diagnosis of some rarely seen conditions, and also find the appropriate treatment during the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists 24th Annual Scientific and Clinical Congress in Nashville. Hirschhorn said the work can be especially beneficial in single gene disorders but can also be applied to a wider patient pool.
